ELA Mrs. Kersey

         

     Having completed our first class novel, we will use it as the basis for writing informative essays about character and theme.  We will move on to our next novel, "The Cay".  This book was chosen to highlight a similar theme.  This book will be used as a touchstone for a few research based projects.

     Students will continue to read a book of their own choosing each month.  Hopefully, this will encourage a long-lasting love of books!

     Throughout the year, we will be studying spelling and vocabulary.  In addition, there will be a grammar component in each trimester.  
      
There will be a weekly independent reading requirement, so find a book you think you will enjoy and bring it in to be approved.

EXTRA-HELP WILL BE AVAILABLE ON TUESDAY AND THURSDAY MORNINGS.
